Exciting park projects are underway
At the June 16 Raleigh City Council meeting, Council reviewed the updated project priorities and unanimously approved the design contract for the Plaza & Play and the funding agreement with the Dix Park Conservancy. Here's what is in the works:
Free online classes for you to practice at home to benefit physical, mental and emotional well-being.
With park programs postponed due to COVID-19 , Dorothea Dix Park is offering a series of free virtual wellness classes that folks can practice at home, in the backyard or even at the park (as long as you are also practicing social distancing).
What an exciting year it has been! One year ago today... we celebrated the adoption of the Master Plan and kicked-off the next phase of creating Dorothea Dix Park!
Thank you for supporting your park through the master planning process, joining us for activities and festivals, and sharing what you love about Dix Park on social media. Check out our year-in-review to see all we've done together!
